The Fire Rises!

Posted on

Tomorrow (or midnight tonight for some folks) is the day that many people have been eagerly anticipating for a while now: the release of The Dark Knight Rises.

And with the release of the newest and final film in director Christopher Nolan’s trilogy of Batman films, quite a few patrons have come in looking to whet their appetite on all things related to the caped crusader…

So we’re happy to remind you that we have quite a few Batman graphic novels, as well DVDs. Hopefully they’ll help you satisfy your hunger for some of the adventures of Gotham City’s favorite characters.

And if you get a chance, let us know what you think of the new movie.
